Employers’ Year End Reporting 2024

Reporting the numerous sets of employee data that HMRC requires after the end of the tax year is a major task for all employers to manage.

Making sure you have accurate data in place ahead of multiple deadlines can be a challenge, and if you fall behind, or submit inaccurate reporting, you may suffer penalties from HMRC.

Important reporting deadlines that all employers should be aware of:

  • Gender Pay Gap Reporting Deadline: 4 April 2024
  • Short-term Business Visitors Reporting Deadline: 31 May 2024
  • P11D Reporting Deadline: 6th July 2024
  • Employee Share Plan Reporting Deadline: 6th July 2024

The complexities of these reporting elements will vary according to your business, and some reports are much more labour-intensive than others. 

We have pulled together everything you need to know for each of these four reporting requirements, with tips, guides and software to help you streamline your reporting processes.
